Teacher Transition Fund

I've worked as a substitute teacher for over 13 years in the Seattle Public School  district, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, work has been completely halted and is not scheduled to resume in a normal capacity anytime soon.  Recently, theres been activity on the online instructional front, but most of these jobs not only require extensive training, but are not being offered in the normal teacher pool.  You must be an internal, tenured lead teacher to be in consideration, so people like me are out of luck.  What makes things worse is that last week while exercising,  I tore my ACL tendon which will stop me from being able to work somewhere else  in any capacity for at least 6-8 weeks.  

Im asking for financial assistance to stop from being  evicted, as well as to keep me afloat with other bills; cell phone, and food.  

Thank you,
